Featured photo is of long-cut Davao banana chips.
Dried chips of banana have long been a favorite snack in the Philippines. The chips are ordinarily round in shape similar to thick poker chips, because the bananas used are cut crosswise.
In recent years, the area of Davao in the Mindanao has been popularizing long-cut banana chips, in which the bananas are sliced lengthwise. A bigger mouthful per piece!
Latin Americans call their long-cut plantain chips tajadas, short for tajadas de plátano maduro. It does look though that Davao’s version is on the more svelte and stylish side.
On the package: Long-cut Banana Chips. Longer, tastier Chips. Not your everyday Banana Chips!
